I also just received an email just like those listed below, from this very same guy. A 'Mike Asi' stating that he is a barrister , legal practitioner and head of chambers of a prominent law firm. He goes on to say that a deceased client of his Mr Peter Oconnell is related to me and that will by 'virtue of family linage' i shall receive 30% of 17 Million US $.
To read the rest, i guess just check out all those listed below.

mikeuzondu@yahoo.co.uk, sent me something today. I am going thru a death in my family and I can't believe how people can be like this. This is a joke right, as soon as something bad happens then someone comes around to make something worst happen. This is not right at all and some of the people of the world we live in are so evil.

I just got an email today from:
MIKE UZONDU AND ASSOCIATE
15 IKORODU ROAD JIBOWU YABA LAGOS
NIGERIA.
TELEPHONE: 234-80-32938723.
Saying that I have a deceased relative (who doesn't exist) and this Mike Uzondu says that "the deceased took life Insurance
Policy which entitles any Surviving member of his family to a whooping sum
of USD5,500,000.00 in the event of his death." And here is the email address (or one of them) to be aware of: mikeuzondu1@yahoo.com
Who would actually believe all this? The very fact that this supposed "lawyer" can't even spell properly gives you a clue that it's a scam.

Dear Cobbs,

I know this Letter will come to you as a suprise,though i do not intend to embarras you.Let me start by Formally introducing My self to you .I am Barrister Peter Anyawu,a Legal Practitioner and Head ofChambers,of an International accredited Law Firm .

I am the Attorney representing Engr.CHARLES Anthony Cobbs who lost his life in recent Tsunami disaster while on vacation with his family in Thailand at the famous tourist resrt Island of Phuket.According to report reaching me,based on an extensive inquiry through Nigeria Embassy in Thailand revealed that non of his family member survived devastating Tsunami disaster.

My deceased client lived most of his life time in Nigeria and took here as a home..As a consultant to OilProspecting Companies in Nigeria he made fortune for him self and ihave been his personal Attorney Spanning for a period of five years.

Now to the brass tack ,the deceased took life Insurance Policy which entitles any Surviving member of his family to a whooping sum of USD19,000,000.00 in the event of his death.Unfortunately his wife and children who statutorily are his next of kin are no more and under the existing law here the Surviving relatives of my deceased client becomes the benefactors.

It is as a result of this development that compelled me to go into an extensive search in the internet for possible trace of his family Linage but to no avail.However,since coincidentally both of you bear the same Last name,I want to seek your consent to present you as a relative to My deceased client by virtue of family linage.As attorney to the decesaed the onus of proof to establish your relationship with my client,rest on me and toachieve this objective,there are judicial process involved which i will brief you on subsequent correspondence if you indicate interest.

I am not puruing this cliam for the monetary gain,it is a duty i owe to my late client as i intend to use part of the fund to establish a Foundation in his name,notwithstanding you will be adquately rewarded for your assistance in this endeavour,as you will receive 30% of the total amt involved.

PLEASE THIS TRANSACTION IS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.

Expecting to hear from you as soon as possible.

Peter Anyawu esq.
Priciple partner
